Principal's Message

Hello, Cortez Families!

I am Ms. Lin Soriano and I am thrilled to be the principal of Cortez Elementary School. Although I am new to Cortez this year, I have worked in the Clark County School District for over 17 years. I have a true love for education and have been a classroom teacher in both elementary and middle school, as well as an administrator for over 8 years. 

I am originally from Indiana and have been living in Las Vegas since 2003. I went to Indiana University for my bachelor’s degree, UNLV for my master’s degree, and UNLV for my juris doctor. Go Rebels!

In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my two dogs and hiking as far as their little legs can take them! I also enjoy traveling and exploring new places. 

I am more than excited to be leading the Cortez Caballero Community into even greater student success and achievement. I am confident that as we get through the challenges that COVID-19 brought, we will be a stronger team ready to take on any obstacle we may face!

Here’s to a great new year!


Ms. Soriano
